Who says fairytales don’t exist in real life?

In Kyiv, one fairytale has come to life at the National Art Museum, which has turned into a home for the Sleeping Beauty.

This re-enactment of a fairytale is a unique project of the Ukrainian-Canadian artist Taras Polataiko.

An anonymous beauty will be sleeping in her home for two hours per day until somebody wakes her up with a kiss, just like it  happened in the story by Charles Perrault.

To get close to the maiden, visitors will have to sign a contract promising to marry her if she wakes up as a result of the kiss. She has already agreed to marry the guy who will make her eyes open.

The project runs until the beauty wakes up.

Sleeping Beauty. Through Sept. 9. National Art Museum of Ukraine. Hr 20
